JD/MBA Program

University at Albany School of Business, Albany Law School Collaborative Program

The MBA degree program for current JD students was designed to promote integration between the fields of law and business administration. Covering areas such as Accounting, Information Technology Management (ITM), Marketing and Management, you can earn both degrees in four years of study, rather than the usual five. The program is designed so that certain elective courses may be applicable to both degrees. As a recipient of both the JD and MBA degrees, you hold professional credentials for a broad range of careers in corporate law, business consulting, teaching, and research.

Admission Requirements

The applicant must score well on the LSAT. The GMAT, a requirement for MBA admission, will be waived in lieu of the LSAT.

Applicants will preferably have an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or better and submit academic transcripts, three letters of recommendation, a resume, and a personal statement. All applicants must be matriculated in the JD program at Albany Law School.

Current JD students are strongly encouraged to submit personal statements and recommendation letters designed for admission into the MBA program. Specifically, personal statements and recommendation letters should be tailored for consideration by an MBA Admissions Committee. We suggest that applications include at least one letter of recommendation from current Albany Law School faculty.
Interviews are not required; however, they are not uncommon and may be requested of applicants.
